Kirk Ferentz: What happens in the locker room ...

Postgame locker room celebrations have become all the rage on the internet and on university websites. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz is not a fan.

"I guess the locker room and the bathroom are two places I try not to have exposed to the public at this point," Ferentz said. "To me, there are certain things that should still be left to some level of privacy. I know it's not the way the world is going right now. To me, football is a pretty intimate experience sometimes. It's nice to have some intimate moments."

Ferentz considers the locker room a private place, no matter what others think or do.

"To me, everything in life doesn't have to be public," Ferentz said. "That's why I don't tweet."

Ferentz said if someone told him he needed to give cameras more access to help recruiting, "I'll probably retire."

COLEMAN A CHALLENGE: Indiana's Tevin Coleman is the nation's second-leading rusher at 168.2 yards a game. He trails only Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin (174.2). Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah is fourth (146.3).

"All three are outstanding players, and Coleman is right in there," Ferentz said. "Those three could play anywhere."

Coleman has had 13 carries of 40 yards or more.

"He's really tough and hard-nosed, and he's fast," Ferentz said.
